If your mates battery is able to start it no problem then your battery is at fault imo. Either your battery is underpower/knackered or its not being charged enough or theres a drain on the battery over night Smiley

Cold is a battery killer too if they are getting on a bit.

this is a sure sign of a dieing/dead battery
have the battery tested to see how bad it is, BUT i can assure you that it will fail,also check that the alternator is charging that battery at least at 13.5 volt while running, a quick check for the battery is to put an analogue volt meter across it and watch the needle while cranking the engine SHOULD not drop below 10.5 Volts.
If it is a Used Japanese Import ( sorry I am NZ based so not sure of your laws) then when replacing the glowplugs be cautious as some of the diesels in Japan use a "quick glow" system that use 6 volt glowplugs that get to temp faster,BUT are not interchangeable with the "General" spec vehicles as the timer is different..
The Timer is all toyota vehicles use the resistance of the glow plugs to know how long to glow for, so if you are getting short glow times then it could indicate that either one or more glow plug is dead or that maybe the wrong glow plugs have been installed..

problem is solved with the new battery.
I had done loads of tests on the alternator with every thing running and it always kicked out the right power
glow plugs new from auto jap parts genesis twin coil glow plugs been a god send for heating the cold oil for starting in the morning.
